First Steps...First Cousins

We are back from our last trip of the summer. A week at the lake with Dr. Dad's family. All 16 of us!

Just before we left, Baby Boy decided it would be a great time to start venturing out on two feet.

After spending the week basking in the glow of all that glorious cousinly attention, he has really taken off.

Here they all are. The first cousins. In this picture they are ages (in order) 11, 9, 8, 6, 5, 5, 3 and 1.

We are all trying to enjoy the last of the summer weeks.

Baby Girl starts school again September 1st.

Dr. Dad is hard at work.

My general club and volunteer activities will start up in full swing shortly.

Most of all, we will all be chasing after this guy.

Fun!

Happy Anniversary

Twelve years ago today, I married this guy

I think we have lived each and every vow we took on that day. Better, worse, sickness, health, good times, bad, richer, poorer.

Well, except the until death do us part vow. We'd like to wait a while on that one.

We've known each other for sixteen years, nearly half our lives. And we are still in love.

Lucky us!
